The hectic part is over, though there's still quite a bit to do. Mostly paperwork, and mostly things that the attorney and accounts and such can deal with, albeit in a convoluted way. And I'll still have to get involved and coordinate as much as I can -- and can hopefully understand the gobbledygook.
The flight on American Airlines was a little screwy -- mostly in a variety of pre-flight things. Not worth going into them all (a bunch with customer service when I had to change my flight a couple days ago), but here's one small event at the airport: I had that aforementioned additional full-sized suitcase I was checking. It turned out the be three pounds over the limit. Okay, fine, no problem, How much is the extra fee? Well...it was $100. For three extra pounds. No thanks. So, I had to open the suitcase, rummage around and take out three pounds worth of things and shift them to my carry-on. Now, the odd thing about this, of course., is that I didn't lower the weight of what I was bringing on the plane. I just shifted it from one bag to another.
(Alas, I had removed a bag with some thing from my folks. And I didn't check what was in it -- it just felt like it would be three pounds -- and when I got to the TSA checkers, it turned out that one of the items had a small fold-up blade, so they had to confiscate it and throw it away. Happily, it wasn't any even remotely meaningful or even important, and even was something I could easily buy here, but it was useful and theirs. My fault for not checking, but...$100 for three extra pounds? Why not pro-rate it. Especially since I was just shifting weight between two suitcases.)
Also, no classical music channel on the in-flight entertainment. No problem having 12 channels of overlapping kinds of pop music, but no classical. Ah, well, they landed safely and a couple minutes early, and that's the only thing that really matters.
Now, diving back to unpacking and collapsing...
